... that's how we call them in germany.

It was original totally overexposed, but I love RAW files and could save that picture.

I had a batch of these living in the attic of an abandoned house near my home. I used them for practice inshooting flight shots and it was the perfect practice range, until some so-and-so boarded up their roost when it got really cold up here. The birds have been roosting that house for years and then some&^%$ boards up the roost when they need it more than ever. The birds are all gone now, the house sits empty and boarded up, and the*&^% is probably rubbing his hands together and cackling with glee that he has done such a fine job of keeping the pigeons from staying warm during this unbelievable cold snap.

Nice photograph of this fine bird. It looks just like one of my favorite practice subjects who hasnow flown the coop so to speak.:G

One of my rats:



Here's another who isn't very happy about no more flying rats:

Ok, I just want to say that if that's what you can do with over-exposed RAW files, I want RAW right now. Every pixel looks great. There isn't a blown highlight anywhere to be seen. Rats or not, they make a fine photo subject.
